Rate my Meals – 2010-03-06

I haven’t posted in a week because I’ve really been under the weather. What was an irritating cold last weekend turned into something really nasty during the week which put me completely out of commission for a couple of days. I actually ate pretty well during the week despite that, although as usual dinner time was my nemesis. I’ve probably eaten more oatmeal in the last few weeks than I have my entire life and I’m actually enjoying the stuff, although part of me would rather be savoring a nice omelet or eggs Benedict. And I’m not saying I won’t have those – but the buttered toast, hashbrowns, sausage and all the fixings are hopefully things of the past. In my previous forays with oatmeal I’ve always gotten hungry way before lunch but that hasn’t been a problem for me this time so we’ll see if we can keep it going.

So I’m still not 100% but here was my yesterday:

Oatmeal and Avacado Sandwich

Breakfast was another bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal to which I added a splash of skim milk, some blueberries and some walnuts. I used the toppings sparingly and it made a difference. Previously I had piled on the blueberries and they overwhelmed the oatmeal but this time I think I got the ratio right. Banana and peanut butter toast. Notice that nice thin layer of peanut butter!

Lunch was not good, but not as bad as it could have been. Ate at Bruegger’s and had a salt bagel with jalapeno cream cheese and cucumber sandwich and a bowl of butternut squash soup.

Everyone was gone tonight with my wife and daughter working at a school play and my son at a sleep-over so I made an avocado sandwich with two slices of wheat bread, a slice of provolone, an avocado and a couple of slices of tomato. Oh, and a thin layer of mayo. 8 Triscuits and a half of a Rei melon.

Ever had a Rei melon before? Neither had I until I had the other half the day prior. I bought it at the grocery store because it was unique and the sign from the produce manager said it was the “best fruit in the store” so of course I took his word and gave it a try. Plus it was only $1.69. Or so I thought, at the register I realized it was $1.69 a pound so my 3.7 pound experimental melon went from costing $1.69 to $6.25 – all of a sudden not so good if I didn’t like it! I had the first half warm and thought it was really bland and tasteless, although the texture was nice. This half I had cold and it tasted better, but not much. Sort of like a mild honeydew. The first centimeter or so was really good but as you worked toward the rind it became less appealing. I won’t be buying one again.

I did graze on 4 Do-si-do girl scout cookies that I didn’t think to get a picture of.

So how do you think I did? Click a star!

Do-si-dos? I’m a Samoas and Thin-Mints man myself.

Looking at your meals for the past few days, I don’t think you are getting enough protein. Are you strength training? Are you counting grams of protein consumed daily?
